Love that phrase... on the mind it stays... But there's another Pete phrase that ruins my day... Pete and repeat went over the bridge, Pete fell in and who was left- It simply makes my eyes to glaze!... Who invented that ditty any way?... Want to go give him a present of his very own Dragon to raise... LOL... Get it... Let Dragon drive HIM crazy!... Burn down his house... Invite pet pigeons to roost in his room... You get the idea!... LOL...

Who is this Pete you are talking about...the one your Mother often would shout....a cousin or friend...a fictitious blend...I'd sure like to meet him without any doubt
